Vedder River Cleanup in 2012

Posted on February 8th 2012, by Chilliwack Vedder River Cleanup Society

Chilliwack River cleanup

Chilliwack Vedder River Cleanup Society, the City of Chilliwack and Fraser Valley Regional District have finalized three dates for Vedder River Cleanups in 2012. The dates are:

  • Saturday, April 14th at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve
  • Saturday, July 14th at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve
  • Sunday, September 30th - World Rivers Day, at the Chilliwack Fish and Game Club House

This will be Chilliwack Vedder River Cleanup Society's eleventh year. In 2011, a total of 462 volunteers participated in three cleanups, putting in 1,848 volunteer hours. Volunteers collected 7.14 tonnes of material, giving the society a total of 72.87 tonnes of garbage collected since 2002.

Chilliwack/Vedder River is the most popular recreational corridor in British Columbia, but it is also an important watershed for fish and other wildlife. The abundance of salmon and steelhead provide enjoyment for tens of thousands of anglers each year so it is important for the angling community to give back during these three days.

For more information and updates on the cleanups and other projects by Chilliwack Vedder River Cleanup Society, please visit their website.
